First report of Colletotrichum acutatum on strawberry in Norway
Colletotricum acutatum (EU Annexes) was detected on strawberry (Fragaria ananassa) in Norway, in 1999. Symptoms were observed in glasshouse-grown strawberries (cv. Korona). Symptoms were typical of strawberry anthracnose: sunken, brown, and firm lesions appearing on maturing fruits. The identity of the pathogen was confirmed by 2 different laboratories and Koch’s postulates were fulfilled. This is the first report of Colletotrichum acutatum in Norway.
